The shoulder is an elegant piece of machinery and is extremely complex. It happens to have the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. However, this large range of motion can cause the shoulder to become unstable, leading to joint problems and the site of multiple injuries. Your shoulder joint is composed of four joints, over 30 muscles, 6 major ligaments, and three bones: the clavicle (collarbone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humorous (upper arm bone). The edge of the scapula, called the acromion, forms the top of the shoulder. Some common shoulder injuries include, rotator cuff tendonitis, rotator cuff bursitis, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, shoulder contusions and ligament strains and tears.
